Just a warning: This is a real family and these are real children.  I'm saying that now because I actually still don't believe it.  Picture being a family photographer (it's awesome) and then picture walking into a shoot where all three kids are STOKED to be there, all they do is hysterically giggle, and *enthusiastically* do every single thing I ask them to do.  Oh, and since we're day dreaming, now picture that they're small Asian kids.  Ya, I know.  You're dying. You're dead. This is the Kwan family, and they may be more well behaved than your kids, but that's not a guarantee. I met Janice, the mama, in my yoga class, and we fast became not just friends but like got each other's back, don't fuck with her friends.  Hard to explain.  She's a generous and very cool gem of a human being.  And she's a Brooklyn born, Los Angeles educated girl livin' in Wellesley.  Let's all say a prayer for her tonight. ;)   Enjoy the Kwan crew.  I sure did!  THANK YOU, Janice!  Namaste. ;)

I met Jenna at one of my best friend, Kim's,  wedding.  Jenna and Kim are cousins and I've been hearing about Jenna for a couple of years. 
Jenna and her wonderful husband, Paul, lost their son Jordan when he was just five months old.  Jordon had Spinal Muscular Atrophy which is the #1 genetic killer of children under two years old.
I don't have many words for what I cannot image.
Soon after they lost Jordan they got pregnant with the brown eyed angel we now know as Austin. When I photographed this family and looked at their photographs I could hear Austin laughing.  He's such a happy, giggly, curious, on the go baby boy.  This family has light in their lives again, and being around them gives me trust in life.  I hope you enjoy these photographs and this family.  I love them quite a bit.  Thank you guys so much for letting me photograph you guys! LOVE!

I am lucky enough to say that I've been photographing Lu, Peter, and their gorgeous boys for six years now.  Lu was a bridesmaid to one of my favorite brides (now friend) of all time, Hillary Deshler (owns Inde Salon in Quincy and Lola in Dorchester) and we were fast friends.  I have watched this little crew grow and change and become maaaaybe the most hilarious family I photograph.  Do they like getting their photographs professionally taken?  Possibly no.  But if I chased 'em long enough I at least got their spirits captured.  Or I tried to!  It ain't easy fighting twin tough kids who are funnier than me, but I tried! Lu says I did a good job so I'll rest easy on that. :)  These are candid, honest photographs of a family FULL of love and laughter.  Hell ya.
THANK YOU, guys!  See you next year! LOVE!!

FAVORITE ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!! 
 This adorable, ultra humble, really sweet, super smart, wicked funny family has had me over to photograph them for three years running!  How insanely lucky am I!?  And they let me just come in and follow them around and do our thing.  There's nothing posed or forced or fake so in turn their photographs are hilaaaaarious and candid and real.  They'll look back at these photos and time travel in twenty years.  Not because I do anything special, but because they don't force something that isn't.  Which is what makes a great photograph, right?  Are your favorite photographs the ones at Sears (possibly because they're hilarious) or the ones of you in your favorite shirt that one summer you never took it off?  Or in the Capili family's case, trying on their *epic* halloween costumes and losing themselves in their imagination.  This family is absolutely fucking rad.  I'm the luckiest photographer in the world to call them friends. Honestly.  Please enjoy Allan, Sharon, and their sons Ryan (skeleton knight) and Marcus (fire breathing red dragon).

If you've followed me for a bit you know that I love my job more than I could have ever imagined. And I love when people love photography and see it's incredible value, it's time capsule nature, and how when it's all said and done a photograph will be indistinguishable from the truth of our lives.  We photographed Cory and George's wedding four years ago, and it was *truly* awesome to see them again and to meet Tyler, their son.  Their beautiful, ultra sweet little boy.  I spent some time with them capturing what love in a family looks like.  I love this family so very much, and it's an honor to be trusted to document them and their lives. Their love.
